Annika's new word

Annika has a few words that she says - dada, hi, bye and doggie and today she learned a new word... stinky!

Annika drinking from a sippy cup... with no hands!

This is Annika's new trick and the first thing that little sis has taught big brother!

Random photes from the Summer

Annika 6 months ~ munching on her toes.

Sawyer driving a John Deer tractor at the State Fair.

Annika 8 1/2 months

Sawyer pretending to be a deer.

Annika 8 months old - we caught her one day pulling herself up all by herself and walking along the wall.

Annika showing off her bathing suit at Sol Duc Hot Springs (Annika 9 months).

Last week Sawyer said that Annika looks like an angle but then quickly changed it to a troll ?!? Odd, but ironically enough I had taken this picture after her bath and yes she kind of does look like a troll. (Annika 10 months old)

Here's a great photo of Annika showing off her new teeth ~ all 6! The first 4 teeth all popped up the same day ~ a week before she turned 8 months, and the other 2 came a month later.

More photos from Norway

While we were in Norway Annika started sitting without support and pushing herself backwards on her tummy. (Annika ~ 6 months old)

Annika just being a cutie in the tub (at least it was used as a tub for her!)

We've got a dancer on our hands (Annika ~ 10 months)

Then Sawyer comes along and gives her a head butt!

We bought this walking toy so Annika could cruse around with it. This is her first trip walking around with it. (Annika ~ 10 months).

In May Annika, Sawyer and I went to Norway for a month. Wer had lots of fun - fishing trips, trips to the cabin, days at the beach and in the mountains, and visiting family and friends.

The cod that Sawyer caught! The biggest one for the day.

Breaking News! Annika is on a roll!

Annika rolled over from her tummy to her back last night for the first time. She almost made it from her back to her tummy this morning.

We've got a mover on our hands and she only turned 4 months old just a few days ago!

Pictures from March

Sawyer helping out his sister with tummy time.

Annika wearing the hat and sweater that her Grandmother O'Brien made.

We were lucky to get so many smiles on camera. Usually she's full of smiles but when the camera comes out they disappear.

Annika 4 months old

An Afternoon at the Park

Now that Mom is on maternity leave and Sawyer is in school only 3 half days we spend the few nice days that we get playing at the park. Here we are at St.Edwards Park.
While Sawyer is playing, Annika usally takes a nap. Here she is at 4 weeks.
